Food Safety During Power Outages

Unfortunately, we experience more than our share of power outages in Shelby County, mainly due to our frequent severe weather.

Because of this, we want you to have the information necessary to protect yourself, your family, and hopefully keep you from having to throw away food that has ruined.
